Public lectures on some Traditional Economic Solutions to poverty in Nigeria, specifically the Igbo Apprentice System, Yoruba Ajo Thrift Savings, and Hausa Integral Communalism. Rethinking Economics The Uploaders (RETU) invites you to a webinar with influential academics from Nigeria to lecture on three traditional economic solutions to poverty: the Igbo Apprenticeship System, the Yoruba Ajo Thrift Savings, and the Hausa Communalism. The event aims to educate on how these Nigerian traditional economic systems work, propose that they be included in the college Economics curriculum, and advise on how their principles can be applied at both micro and macro levels to lift many people out of poverty.
